— Katie Cizynski led a balanced Fairfield attack with 14 points and also had 11 rebounds, leading Fairfield to a 57-47 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference women’s basketball victory over Siena on Sunday at Alumni Recreation Center.

The Saints (2-16 MAAC, 7-20 overall) lost for the ninth straight time at home.

Felicia DaCruz and Kristin Schatzlein added 13 points apiece for the Stags (14-4, 19-8), who have won seven straight. Alexys Vazquez poured in 12 points.

The Stags led, 29-27, at halftime. They took control of the game with an 11-3 run to open the second half. The Saints could never recover.

Ida Krogh was the only double-digit scorer for Siena with 12 points.

The Saints outrebounded the Stags, 40-32, and that led to a 14-1 edge in second-chance points.

Siena plays its final home game of the season Friday when it hosts Saint Peter’s at 7 p.m.
